If hr is higher than target, and you feel ok afterwards, that's ok, no problem. ...Read more

The standard therapy to improve ef is a combination of betablockade (especially carvedilol/coreg) plus an ace-inhibitor taken daily for months to years. Some forms of cardiomyopathy are not reversible, unfortuntately. Since you've had a stent, a careful look for hibernating myocardium is indicated. ...Read more
When exercising one identifies a heart rate which is 100%, depending on age. 100% of what? (i refer to the 220-age formula for 100% heart rate.)

Heart rate for exerc: Theoretical maximum heart rate is 220 minus your age, so your max would be 147. Depending on your goals and fitness level your workout heart rate should be between 60-80 percent of your max, so around 90-115 beats per min. Heart medication such as a beta blocker will typically make it difficult to get the heart rate much above 100. ...Read more
I think so: I think ur asking if a heart rate of 81 when you are not resting (so perhaps after you exercise?) is a safe rate; if that's correct then yes 81 is probably fine. A "normal" heart rate varies depending on lots of things (age, activity, emotions, meds, hydration status, more). In general the better shape you're in, the lower your rate goes. And with vigorous exercise it can go up much higher than 81. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Resting heart rate of 99bpm, after exercise, my heart rate is 120bpm but goes back to 99bpm. Ekg is normal. See cardiologist?
Heart rate: At your age a low heart rate of 99 is a little unusual. Your primary md could start your evaluation with an ekg. I would also consider a non cardiac cause such as hyperthyroidism or anemia. I would also think you can achieve a much higher rate than 120. You didn't mention how hard you were exercising. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
